Jump into Fall with these Activities

Traditionally, fall is when farmers harvest their crops and other produce and when the leaves change colours to beautiful reds and yellows and oranges before they fall to the ground. However, fall is also the time of year when there is so much to do outside! It is the time of year to embrace the change in weather and to see how Mother Nature transforms the environment around us.

It is not much longer until it gets colder, and snow starts to fall to bring golf season to a close. So why not take advantage of the nice weather and squeeze in another round of golf or hit a bucket of balls at a driving range?

See the Colours Change

Step out into the crisp Autumn air and soak in the sun and the leaves as they change colours. See how many different colours you can see in the leaves, rake a pile of leaves together and jump in, and go for a walk and see if you can catch any leaves as they fall! There are endless things to do outside this fall. Visit these parks and trails to be immersed in autumn colours.
